There, now, if anything in the world
could improve that dashing count, it
would be to just (lump all Xhe doubt
ful States in Greeley's white liat and
then cram them down with Uie aiper
iiicnntbent weight of Massachusetts,
Michigan, Iowa, MississipL, Maine,
South Carolina, etc., etc. We are sur
prised that Theodoi-es genhis did not
suggest that summary method of end
ing the controversy, and thus have an
end ot the angry tun of the elec
tioneering which now so stuns the pub
lic ear. If it were not for one or two
tacts, those figures of Tiltou's might
be startling ; but in the light of those
fact.s tliey tone down into the airy
nothings of a flighty, euthusiastie and
visionary political strippling. They
are based ou no possible reasonable
estimate of the situation, outside of
more than three or four of the States
named for Greeley. To illustrate :
California is put down as certain tor
Greeley. Xo man who knows the
State aiul the character ot the men
who now lead the what-is-it party of
that State, puts California down as
worse tlian doubtful for Grant. Ore
gon is put ou the list of doubtful,
while tlicre is not a State in the Union
more certain to vote for Grant. We
can find Theodore a scoi-e or so of
Democrats who will caper with him
for a few thousand dollars that Grant
will carry tiie State by a thousand ma
jority. Nevada for Greeley ! Dela
ware for Greeley ! Wisconsin doubt
ful ! Illinais doubtliil ! Heally, the
ease with which the airy 'i'ilton plays
battledore with great solid Suites,
would be iufenscly amusing, if one
could divest himself of tlie unpleasant
suspicion tliat tlie player is slightly
touched in tlie head with somiithing
akin to enthused lunacy.
Tbe ludicrous overcome very tiling
else, however, and we langh outright
wheu we see Tilton, bestride Jus
loosely built column of figures, as Ik;
used to do his grandfather's walking-
stick, and with make--l-Ueve whip

BELIEF I'KOM TAXES.
Dnring (3ie present vear tlie lieoplc
have heen, or will be, reheved of a
very considerable proportion of tlie
United States taxes, which have hitls
erto been felt as burdensome. The in
come taxes had already been abol-
Islied eo far s tltey affected the labor
ing tud por classes. The revenues
are new derived, so far as direct taxes
are concerned, almost eKclushrely from
the wealthy or the well-to-do classes.
Liqaors and tobaeeo in tts various
forias tre still taxeil ; but they are ar
ticles net necessary to cither subsist
ence oncemort. Tbe tax u them is
a bwrtlea which na iuai bears
except front voluntary choice. The
statu p tax on legal documents,
papers, etc., will cease ou and
after October first, except s to bunk
checks, drafts or orders. The tax on
gas ceases on and after August 1st.
So, one br one, the Imnlens of taxation
forced wpou the people by the great
rebellion, are removed by the wise aud
beneficent policy of the Administra
tiou of President Grant. Tliis, too,
while the same policy pays off tlie Xa
tionaldeht at the rate of over $100.
000,000 per rear. It la a feature of
public financial management which no
former administration ever exhibited.
Baroness Burdett Courts allows only
side whiskers without mustaches on
the faces of her bank clerks. .
Yesterday. Mr. T. I!. Uickey. show
ed us a U-lter from an intelligent and
observing gentleman of Missouri who
has recently traveled through Illinois
and some of the Eastern States. He
says : "You may go your bottom dol
lar on the election of Grant and Wil
son, as that is certain without the aid
of Missouri," which lie concedes will
go for Greeley provided the 30.000 en
franchised rebels vote solid for him.
He continues; '-Illinois will give
Grant aud Wilson 50,001 majority.
Further on. the correspondent says :
"I have just returned from Boston and
Xew York where 1 came iu contact
with gentlemen from all parts of the
country ; and I have made it a spe
cialty to inquire of tlie strength of
Liberal Hepublieuiis. Without ex
ception, I have lieen told that it con
sists only of disappointed office-seekers,
and that the gain to the Demo
cratic party from it, by accepting
Greeley, will not e-inal the loss of true
Democrats who will vote for Grant in"
The election hi Xorth Carolina
eouw-s ofT to-day. The campaign has
Ihh'B the hottest known in t'e old
XortU State lor many years. Extra
ordinary efforts have been made by
both parties and the result, to out
siders, appears likely to be close. The
Greeley party the late leading rebels
composed of former slave-owners and
the Democratic aristocracy seem to
have determined, to carry the State at
all hazards, by foul means or fair. The
dispatches inform us that a general or-j-itnization
has been ell'eded to prevent
Kermblieaus from votinir; but, not
withstanding this, the indications are
favorable for a Republican triumph.
Tlw Greeleyites have claimed Xorth
Carolina as sure for Greeley. If tiie
State vote to-day for the Republican
ticket it will be a sure index to the re
sult in November, and will not only
upset the basis of Greeley estimates,
but 0 far towards producing a reac
tion against tlie conglomerate Presi
Beriah Brown has taken a nm-and-jnmp
at the political situation and by
this dashing expedient has got several
feet aliead of most of his Democratic
brethren. Beriah declares thnt be ac
tually enjoys the reproduction by the
newspapers of the broadsides which
Greeley used to pour into tlie Irmo-
cratie camp. Which is equivalent to
saying that Iteriali is delighted to be
called a "slum," a "villain," a "liar,"
u "horse-thiei," a "daugerous ele
ment." and such like pet unities. He
is glad that Mr. Greeley applied these
and similar epithet to him In-cause it
shows that "tlie Democracy had. tn
him. a toe worthy of their most daring
fflbrts." Wc observe, by the way,
that Beriah is making some "daring
efforts," himself, evidently in imita
tion of Greeley's favorite style. It is
one ot the most remarkable things in
tlie world, how quickly and easily a
slum Democrat Ctlls into tlie tracks of
AT TIIKIIt OI.lt THICKS.
The Democracy of San Francisco
can't forget tlie halcyon days when
everything of a public nature was de
cided by the high old art of ballot-box
stuffing. The following is a dispatch
of Monday tire 20th : "Thos. O'Neil
and juo. Can- will In; examined to
morrow ou the charge of fraudulent
voting at the late Democratic
Primary in the Twelfth A'ard.
it is alleged that 130 fraudulent votes
were returned from that Waul alone."
These Greeley "slums" were doubtless
practising, for the Xoveinber election.
They want to keep their hands iu.
When the Democracy have noliody
else to cheat, they cheat one another,
on the principle, we suppose that eter
nal vigilance, etc.
There is one Democratic paper In
Wisconsin tiiat will not supjiort Gree
ley. The Prairie dn Chicn Courier,
one of the ablest of our Democratic ex
changes, announces its purpose to lire
its hottest campaign shot into the
ticket nominated at Baltimore. A
paragraph from the editorial of the
Courier of last week is reasonable
enough : "In the lirst place we know
there an? over live hundred of our
readers iu the county of Crawford
alone, who do nor. wi-h to vote tor
Greeley. They are truo Democrats
have stood by us many years and
now we intend to stand by them'
Win. A. Piper, nominated by the
Greeley-Gratz-I lemocratic combina
tion, of tlie San Francisco district, for
Congress, is a rich mm who, the
Chronicle says, is chiefly distinguished
for having made the munilkcnt dona
tion of niwty w.HtH to the Sanitary
Fund for the relief ot the wounded on
the battle-field, during the rebellion.
It is a fitting nomination for that
A Xorth Carolina Greeleyite, pre
siding over a county convention, tlie
other day, expressed his opinion that
treason is the crime of a gentleman
after all." And then lie went on to
sieak about the "gentility" and the
moral dignity" of the Southern trai
tors. He is a type of the Greeley par
ty at Hie South.
The Sau Francisco Bulletin which
the Chronicle charges with having been
nicely balanced ou the fence since
Greeley's nomination at Cincinnati,
ha at last been persuaded, by the
plain indications ot the times, to come
out boWly and strongly for Grant, as
the most certain candidate to win.
The canvass in Xorth Carolina is
becoming decidedly hot. We conclude
that Merriatn, tlie Democratic candi
date for Governor, despairs of success,
for, as tlie papers inform us, lie has
lost his temper tud has challenged
Senator Pool to mortal combat. They
are both old duellists and are not like
ly to recede.
An exchange says i Horace Gree
ley left Cincinnati May 5th and Bal
timore July 10th en route for the
White House." Yes ; his term, how
ever, will expire X'ovember 5, when
he will retire to Chappaqua, battered
anJ torn and the worst used-up man
in America. ,
Senator Tipton, who has been most
completely repudiated by the Repub
licans of bU State, Is cited as a wit
ness against Grant. Of such Is , the
kingdom of false wltnesise.
" THE OKLtiOX is UI PL."
We have often iit-ar1 it said tint if. j
when wheat is selling at one dolliir i:t '
Oregon, a buyer should go llnoush the
valley and oiler two dollars, tlie form
ers would refuse to sell and would hold
for 2 25 ; and so of other products.
There is just a little too much truth iu
this saying. We have kuowu wool to
stand at a high figure, when it was
difficult to buy, simply because wool
growers were holding for a still higher
price. Every observer of the wool
market will remember a recent in
stance of this. In talking of this dis
position of the Willamette farmer, a
gentleman, with whom we were con
versing a day or two since, lacetiously
called it "The Oregon Grijie."
Xow, gripes arc not generally
healthy. We know of fretpieut in
stances in which the "Oregon gripe"
has resulted in very considerable loss
to the alHicted party. We know of
three independent farmers in this
county who had. together, last fall,
5,000 bushels ot wheat for which they
vvci'e offered $ 1 25 'jier bushel, deliv
ered at Salem. They refused to sell,

We have heard of another instance,

We have cited these instances to
point a moral ; and the moral is. our
farmers ought, to be guided more by
intelligent judgment and less by the
Oregon Gripe.''' We army ourself
most, decidedly on the side of Ihe fann
er a ag.iin-t the speculator ; and for
that reason our counsel is designed, at.
all times, to enable the tanner to get
ihe most lie can for his crops. In the
instances we have cited, the farmers
got tlu? worst mid the buyers the best,
of it. We wish to remark here that as
a general rule, fanners never make
money by holding on to their products
when prices imtuiiiediately after har
vest are up to the average. It is only
wlien the prices offered arc below av
erage tliat the chances are in favor of
a rise, save iu exceptional cases, the
conditions of which it would be im
possible to state. When prices offered
in the fall tire up to, or above, the av
erage, the farmer had better sell, as a
general rule. Those who pursue this
rule will, in the long run, make the
most out of their crafts. The offerings
this year for wheat will doubtless
start below the average say G5 cents.
Applying the aliove rule, farmers will
do better to hold than to sell. The
chances are in favor of a larger price.
If, as we presume will not be the case,
buyers should start with an offer of 75
or 80 cents, farmers had better sell,
unless in circumstances to hold ou
without possibility of embarrassment.
But our advice is. don't let the "Ore

dressing an abstract idea; but the
presence of your representative, II. M..

strangeness I should otherwise have

by a number of half-caste Moslem
slaves sent to nte trout yanzibsir in

fur morality, he is evidently an idiot,
and there Ire ing no law except tliat f
tlie dagger or musket, I had to sit iu
great weakness, destitute of evcry'hing
save a few clothing and beads which 1
hud taken the precaution to leave here
iu ease of extremity. A near pros

was out of the question. Well, when

vague rumors of English visitors
reaciM-d me. I thought, ol myself as

The water-shed of South and Cen
tral Africa is over 700 miles in length.
The fountains tliereon are almost in
numerable : that is. it would take a
man's lifetime to count them. From,
the water-shed tltey converge into
four large rivers, ami these again into
two mighty streams in tlie great Xile
vallev, which begins in ten degrees
onth latitude. It was long ere light
dawned on the ancient problem aud

had to feel niy way. ami every step
of the way I was generally groping iu
tlie dark, for who cared where the
the rivers ran. We drank our fill and
let the ret run by. Parlugez. who
visited Cazemlie, asked for slaves, and
I heard nothing el. I asked about
the witters, questioned and iTOsswptes
tioned. until I was almost afraid of lu
ng set down as afflcted with hydro
phobia. My last work, in which I
have lieen greatly hindered from want
of suitable attendants, was following
the central line of drainage down the
rough country of cannibals, called
Manyiiema. or shortly Manveina.
This litip of drainage has four lakes iu
it : the fourth I was near when obliged
to turn. It is from-one to three miles
broad, and never can lie reached at
any point or any time ot the year.
The two western drains. Luguira and
Birtlc Fries rivers, flow into it at Lake
Kamolono. Then the great river
Lomain flows through Lake Lincoln
into it, too, and seems to form the .
wetern arm of the Xile on which
Petherlck trailed. Xow I know abouL
500 miles of water-shed, and unfortu
nately the sevehth hundred is the most
interesting of the whole, lor it istlmre.
if l am not mistaken, tliat lour loun
tains arise from an eastern mound and
the last of the four becomes at no great
distance off a large river. Two of
these run north to F.gypt, Lupera and
I -turnlne ana t wo run sontn into inner
Ethiopia as the Liainbia or upper
Zambezi ami Kofneare. Tltese are
not the sources ot the Xile mentioned
bv the Secretary of Minerva in the
city ot Sais to Herodotn. I have
heard of them so often and at a great
distance off that I cannot doubt tlieir
existence, and in spite of the sore
longing tor nome tnat reigns every
time 1 think of my family, I wish to
finish nn by their rediscovery.
Five hundred pounds sterling worth
of goods have again unaccountably
Deen intrusreu to slaves, ana navo

of four months. I must go where they
lie at your expense ere I can put a
natural completion to my work ; and
If mv disclosures regarding the terrible
Ufi.iiin slavery should lead to the siiv
pression of the East Coast slave trade
I shall regarJ that as a greater matter
bv far than the discovery of all tho
X tie sources together. Xow that you

this great object to this fine country
isolated as with a curse from above in
order that slavery and the privileges of
the petty Sultan of Zanzibar may not
be infringed and the rights of tiie

MometlilitK or the Life of the
Jl ex lean President.
Benito Juarez, President of Mexico,
whose death is announced in our tele
graphic columns, and who for a num-
lier of years has played the most con
I spicuous part iu Mexican affairs, was
j born in 1807 at a village nenr Jatlan
(at present known as Villa Juarez) in
: the State ot Ojaca. He is descended
from pure alxirigiiial stock, and was
born in humble circumstances. He
' prepared himclf for the profession ot
tin- law, iu wliich he. gained distinc
tion. Devoted to litieral ideas he took
an active part iu politics as a member
of tlie Legislature of his native State.
He successfully went through the
wlwle range ot tlie judicial organiza
tion ot his Stare, from the position ol
Justice of the Peace to that of presid
ing Judge. In 1S46 he whs elected
Deputy to the Constitutional Congress
in the City of Mexico. During the
period of peace he devoted himself lo
' the opening of roads, the incraese of
primary and higher schools, and the
reform of the financial administration ;
: and on retiring from the Government
j he lelt In the public treasnrv a consid
i erable sum of money. In S'ovember,
j 1857, President Coinonfort made him
I Secretary of State, and sul)seqnciitly
j he was appointed President of the Sn
; preme Court of Justice, under Coniou
i tort, the lilx-ral policy which Juarez
advocared was urged forward, provok-
ing the hostility of the Church party
to an extreme, and laying the founda
tion of those civil feuds w hich led to
the invasion ot the French and the
usurpation of Maximilian. Juarez
became President in 185S, by the re
signation of Comonfort, under a pro
vision of the Mexican Constitution
which, in case of vacancy, makes the
Chief Justice er otfW'i President. Ills
history since then, the part he took in
the overthrow of Maximilian, and the
bold measures by wliich he rvtaiued
his place as Chiet Magistrate, are fa
miliar to every newspaper reader.

Cnpitallnta Vlnltlngr and Investing In
The Bulletin says : P. I). Baford,
superintendent and proprietor of the
Rock Island Plough Manufactory, Illi
nois, was in town this morning. Mr. .
Buford represents a heavy capital, and
was accompanied by J. II. Johnson ot
Chicago, another capitalist, both ot
whom liave invested largely iu the
mining business in Baker county,!
Concerning the mine here referred
to, the same pa tier savs : Two years
ago tlie Burnt River Ditch and Mining
Company iassed into the hands ol
Eastern capitalists who had been
sufficiently satisfied, that the conntry
thereabout w-as extremely rich in
the precious metals and would yield
great returns if water could be brought
to tliat region, which was the only
thing necessary and in which tha't
country was sadly deficient. Mr. J.
II. Johnson of Chicago, who is an ex
erienced miner, aud who has made
and lost immense sums ot money iu
experiments in placer and quartz
mining, examined this country and
was so favorably impressed with it that
he at once interested a number of
Eastern friends and a capital stock of
$1,000,000 was formed, tlie claims pur
chased and the immense work that
would be necessary to carry on the
business commenced. All tliat it re
quired was capital, which be was not
long iu securing. ' Water had to be
obtained from Burnt river and it trib
utaries, nearly one hundred miles dis
tant and to do which a ditch had to be
erected at great expense. This was
commenced, and two weeks ago the
water was first let in, evervthinsr, work
ing very satisfactorily. This ditch is
00 miles long and has a capacity ot
2,500 inches or water. For two years
it required the employment of from
250 to 400 men constantly to construct
it and which contains two Humes, one
of which is 400 feet long and 73 feet
high, the otlier 250 long and 60 feet
high. Mr. Johnson, the Superintend
ent of the Company, who is in the city,
informs us that its construction cost
thus far an amount exceeding: $400,000,
the supplies alone, most of which came
from Chicago, costing $80,000. He is a
man of great mining experience, hav
ing been one of the first wlio discovered
the gold deposits in the Boise Basin,
Idaho, and who looks upon this dis
trict, which this Company will make
its base of operations, one far excel
ing in richness anything he has ever
seen. Mr. Buford, a capitalist from
Rock Ilaii(1. 111., wlio is largely in
terested in this mining enterprise, vis
ited Portland last week to bny np and
satisfy all claims against it which was
concluded to-day. Xo extensive re
sults are hoped for this year, as the
ditch is new and will require time to
get it in running order, but next year
tliey will be felt hi every channel ol
business and trade In the city, the
Company enriched, and every interest
in ho State be invigorated with, new
life. P. I. Buford of Rock Island is
the President of tiie Company, and J.
II. Johnson of Chicago tlie Secretary
and Superintendent. '
